AMERICAN HISTORY THROUGH THE EYES OF RADIO
Through the magic of radio this unique collection of shows captures American History like no other medium can. From dramatizations of events prior to the formation of the United States and our fight for freedom from England through manifest destiny and our push to the Pacific Ocean. From live radio broadcasts of a date which will live in infamy to the resignation of a defeated and humiliated President and so much more. These shows will offer hours of entertainment bringing our early history alive and remind of us what it was like to be glued to our radios before we were glued to 24 hour news channels and instant access internet connections.

Episode 2 mentions the 1937 census and Episode 8 refers to Mother's Day being "next Sunday, May 10th" which lines up with 1936. If the numbering on these tracks is accurate, these episodes begin in March 1936. Dunning lists this show as broadcasting on Wednesday nights before 1938, so the first track here is from March 25th 1936.

A good audio history
Some of the recordings are current but most I've listened too are actual sound recordings as they happened giving us a verbal history. I had no idea that Theodore Roosevelt had made wire recorded speeches, to hear Harding,Taft,and others from the early years of the 20th century is a way of keeping history alive for everyone during our 21st century.

The History of Jim Jones
Canadian radio special report uses original audio recordings and connecting narrative. Exmines the Peoples Temple, the Jonestown massacre and the last few years of the life of Jim Jones. The production really pulled me into the story. Listening enjoyment might be dependent on the listener having at least some basic knowledge of Jones and the Temple. Check the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Jones"
